Lili has extensive experience in the environmental and mining legal regulatory arena. Previously, Lili was at Bowmans and a director of Malan Scholes Attorneys. She has a deep understanding of the South African mining industry and has practical experience working on transactions involving both international and local mining companies throughout South Africa and Africa.
One of the key differentiators for Lili and NSDV is their focus on nurturing their close relationships with government, private sector, and unions. NSDV takes pride in these relationships and providing legal and practical solutions for its clients. It is why clients work with NSDV and what Lili feels is critically lacking in the mining sector.
Africa has a prodigious mineral endowment that already provides many of the critical minerals needed by the global economy. But great natural mineral endowments do not automatically translate into successful and sustainable mining industries. To develop sustainable mining, Africa needs long term responsible investors, considered regulation and to develop a local mine-supporting ecosystem so that it captures more of the value mining generates for its host country.
